Together with my family we have enjoyed one of the very best meals in Malta. The chef is from Sardegna and serves amazing and top of the line food. Quality and service: superb. Make sure you make a reservation.

L'Artista is a fantastic little restaurant in St.Pauls Bay a little off the touristic center. It is a true gem that we always look for but seldom find in touristic places. The food was fantastic and created by the chef on a Daily basis based on the freshest catch of the day with true passion and great skills. Having travelled in more than 30 countries and dined in restaurants up to 3 Star michelins this is one of the very best and most authetic seafood resturants we have come across. There is one thing to say...dont miss it If you are in Malta!!!

We had read reviews of this restaurant on trip advisor and checked it our when we arrived in St Paul's Bay. It seemed quiet so we took a chance but they were full and we booked for the following night. It's a small restaurant run by a lovely couple. Everything is fresh and the menu changes depending on what's good today. We had a delicious meal in a lovely environment. Go, but either pop in or call to book first!

Came across the restaurant on trip advisor and decided to check it out. So glad we did. Both my wife and I are serious foodie people so we were expecting great things. The husband and wife team who own the restaurant are from Sardinia and as I speak fluent Italian meant that we were soon chatting away as if we had known each other for years. All the fish are on display which means that you can select whatever you want, but if you prefer the chef will cook you something that he has devised. The presentation is sublime, with precise attention to detail. The restaurant also stocks a very good selection of fine wines which are certainly reasonably priced. Nothing was a problem for any member of staff, which meant that the atmosphere was always friendly and relaxed.
We have dined in quite a few fish restaurants over the years but can honestly say that this one has been the best so far. Even their pasta is homemade. Another good thing that has come from our visit is that we have all become good friends. If you are looking for a fantastic choice of fish cooked wonderfully with friendly staff then you won't find better than L'Artista. Fantastico!!!!!! It was so good that we returned for a second visit later on in the week.

Food was good though service was slow. No menu which my partner hated: didn't really bother me. Stayed outside but the inside didn't have much of a restaurant feel.
